howdy friends. it’s the middle of august, and we’re two months away from the next BROBOT episode!
so time for a progress post! recently, i took a brief leave from work and spent all of july working on the episode. no bones about it, progress had been behind schedule. by the time i returned to work last monday, most of what i’d hoped to complete was done… there’s some difficult shots here and there that are in progress, but i’m skipping ahead to knock out the rest at the moment. i’m currently at 5 minutes and 30 seconds of the runtime, which clocks in at around 8 minutes as usual. scary, right?
yeah, it kind of is. zoinks! however, looking at the animatic, i have a feeling most of the episode’s conclusion will be quick to put together. there’s not a breadth of shots that are too too difficult, and i even re-use some backgrounds. plus there’s credits, which are easy, and the tag, which takes up 30 seconds and is on one flat background. so while i’m definitely carrying some unease and anxiety about how much time i have left, i’m a good place IMO. i’m working each and every day to complete the show, which, in my sincere opinion, is the best yet.
mark your calendars: friday, october 23 is when i’m planning on releasing episode three, titled “hillsdaleoween”. that gives people a good week preceding halloween to enjoy the show :)
here is a progress shot.
see you ghouls and goblins then,
